Unquestionably stylish, this midtown neighborhood restaurant in a former bungalow features approachable Vietnamese fare and fits the bill for those willing to sacrifice the more authentic and wallet-friendly dishes found in fluorescent-lit, no-frills eateries of the same ilk. The name a nod to its selection of nearly 15 made-to-order varieties of rolls wrapped in moistened rice paper, there are also adequate versions of pho, salads, and bigger than usual bánh mí sandwiches (the standout being the braised pork), and classic dishes like Shaking Beef served after 4 p.m. Service can be sketchy.
